This is a wonderful little hotel with lots of character! You can tell it's an older hotel but it still has everything you need in a beach side hotel. The rooms are spacious and very clean with a fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker and toaster. It has a small pool with showers to clean off the beach sand. There are... More

The resort was very quiet and lovely in the mornings. The room was perfect my husband, my daughter and I. Just a few steps to their private beach. St. Armand's Circle just 3 minutes away. My family and I will definitely come on our next summer vacation here.

The hotel is older. The pool is kinda small. Rooms are spacious. They are clean. Parking is a mess. The spaces are too small. Cars are parked over the lines because of the spaces. No way to really get in and out of the car without squeezing into the drivers seat, then backing your car out so that the rest... More

Coquina is a staple in our family vacation every year. Great rates. Excellent beach access and several rooms with direct pool access. Since this IS smaller hotel with cheaper rates, it comes with a few draw backs. Parking is a bit cramped. One parking spot is allowed per room and the width of the spots are rather small making getting... More

We checked in on a last minute stopover and were pleasantly surprised at a very comfortable room. It was convenient to the restaurants and shops and of course right on the beach. It's not 'resort' level but had everything you would need. We would definitely stop back.

We picked this hotel for its beachfront setting on Lido Key and because it's a pet friendly place. We chose not to rent a car so having St. Armand's Circle a 10 minute walk away was great. It was a poolside room on the main floor, so there was no ocean view but had great proximity to the pool and... More

Coquina was a very comfortable and friendly hotel. It needs a little renovating but the room was very spacious and clean. It was just what we wanted for a winter get away. The management and other employees were very helpful with their knowledge of the area. They accommodated our every request or need. I would definitely return to Coquina for... More

Wow. I actually cannot imagine anyone giving this place more than one star. (Have included photos to illustrate what you will be getting if you stay here). Was told room faced parking lot. Happens. Only this was basically in the parking lot - barely recessed from the cars. That meant that the shades had to be drawn at all times... More

Sitting on my outside balcony enjoying the evening air and thinking how lucky I was to find this gem. Just yesterday, my spry 97 year old mother suggested a road trip to visit an old friend, taking us on a two day adventure straight across Alligator Alley. I wanted someplace relaxing by the water and also convenient for my mom,... More
